Re: Richard Winters

Hi Bert ,

Think this says more than a thousand words about the man .

" During the interview segment of the miniseries Band of Brothers, Winters quoted a passage from a letter he received from Sergeant Mike Ranney, "I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day when he said, 'Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?' Grandpa said 'No… but I served in a company of heroes…'"

" He had requested a private, unannounced funeral service, which was held on January 8, "
